Abstract The Association for Union Democracy grew out of the publication of Union Democracy in Action, a newsletter created by Herman Benson in 1959 to promote democracy within unions. The records of the Association for Union Democracy reflect Herman Benson's interest in the struggles for democracy within unions, particularly the painters', seamen's and steelworkers' unions. To a lesser degree, the papers reflect his interest in general labor concerns.
